An exceptional COUNTRY HOME with a substantial main residence and detached cottage providing superb family accommodation. Beautifully positioned amidst gardens and grounds with an adjoining 4.7 ACRES. Well positioned for access to Kirkby Lonsdale, and beyond the LAKE DISTRICT National Park. Ideal as a family home or business opportunity.

Capernwray is a peaceful hamlet offering a strong community feel, well served with amenities by the neighbouring village of Over Kellet with additional services available within Carnforth. For families there are excellent local schools, both primary and secondary, including the Lancaster Grammar schools and Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale.

The house is grand in appearance yet very welcoming and first impressions are superb.  Entered into the welcoming reception hallway this open space has previously been the main entrance for the B&B, with a dining hall area to one side and access to the first floor bedrooms. To the front of the property is a living room. The heart of the home is an open plan kitchen-dining space - this room has been carefully designed to suit modern day living with a comfortable dining area with a double-sided wood burning stove, and bi-fold doors opening out to the rear gardens.

Open from the kitchen is a good size family living room. A staircase leads to 2 bedrooms with access to a ground floor bedroom. Double doors lead to the conservatory which overlooks the rear garden and has doors opening out.

A ground floor bedroom is set at the front of the property which has an ensuite. The ground floor accommodation is complete with cloak room facilities, a laundry area and boot room with rear access from the side.

The staircase from the living room leads to two good sized bedrooms, both with ensuite shower rooms and storage areas. There are four further double bedrooms, well appointed with an ensuite bathroom and built-in wardrobe and storage space.

Set within the grounds of Capernwray House is Warren Cottage, a detached stone cottage which provides ancillary accommodation.

The kitchen-dining space sits to one side and spans full depth of the property with windows to three elevations. A breakfast bar seamlessly links the dining and living space which creates an excellent family room. From the kitchen there is a useful utility area and shower room. The living room is set around a wood burning stove inset on a stone hearth. Set to the rear are double doors opening to a conservatory garden room. To the first floor can be found three double bedrooms all with built-in storage and a large house bathroom.

Externally, Warren Cottage enjoys an enclosed flagged patio area. The gardens continue beyond this, enjoying the vast open garden space which it currently shares with the main house.

The grounds at Capernwray House are made up of mature garden areas, well-tended lawns, a vegetable garden and a large patio space. The stone outbuilding, open fronted timber store and integral garage to the main house provide ample storage.

Adjoining the property is a 4.7 acre field which has the benefit of roadside access and an access point from the gardens, well suited to those with equestrian or hobby farming interests.
